POINTERS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design agency offers a money back guarantee try to bear in mind that they can’t reimburse the amount of time you invest which is much more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Some designers talk a good game but ultimately a designer can only be determined by the quality of their portfolio, if the work in their design portfolio does not feature actual samples chances are they will never be able to produce a premium logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be understood and be unforgettable, and it’s purpose is to mirror your personal vision for your organization. If a logo designer is not focused on realizing your vision, the thing they are really focused on is how fast they can get paid.

We have undertaken logo design work for builders, universities, heart surgeons, wedding singers, cafes, retailers, and virtually every other kind of business you can think of.

American Made ★ Design

Something that truly sets ImageCo apart from other design companies that you might possibly have come across on-line, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every design project we are retained to perform, we perform in-house. Regardless of the kind of project we undertake, business logo, business website, trade show display, or electrical sign, we do not, and never will farm-out our customer’s work to contractors based outside the United States. Whenever you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the individual that picks up the phone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not an agent that increases the cost of your design project and determines the terms of how you and I conduct business.

ASPECTS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

It’s likely that every new Mauldin business realizes that they probably need a logo, yet few start-ups fully understand the essential role their logo can make in their success, or the reason that one logo performs better than another. A logo has a critical and long-term impact on the financial success of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Mauldin companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t need deliberation, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from label to store signs a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel personal, and they are suitable for the item or business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s a verb and a noun, it’s an identifying mark and the process of marking something to ensure that it can be distinguished, its foundation comes from the mark branded onto animals. Nowadays a brand signifies pretty much anything with an objective, regardless if it be revenue or politics, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like advertising and marketing’s attractive sister, they are both from the same family, the difference being that marketing and advertising are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest aimed at a target audience, it’s goal is to produce an image that the target market can connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured through advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the names Porsche or Corvette what we think of is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can move us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, elegance, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and that is what makes people buy those brands. Brand image is why individuals get specific brands, from Pepsi to Coke Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the origin of the majority of branding firms you’ll find that they are quite often rebranded marketing agencies. When somebody says they are in marketing the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. But when someone claims “I am in branding”… it simply sounds more impressive, probably it’s since the majority of people do not know what it suggests to be in branding so it comes off as mysterious and kind of attractive.

Brand Identity – Is a comprehensive term that defines the visual aspects of a product or agency that influence view points. This largely consists of the name, the logo design, the packaging, the different colors utilized however can likewise consist of sound, lighting, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, felt or listened to belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers

Brand identity designers produce logo designs, sign designs, packaging, and collateral products such as business cards, stationery, and brochures.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Mauldin coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older part of the city and really wanted to cast a retro feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both jobs via creating a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs developed for Mauldin medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the clinical examination of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I recollect where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a household fun facility in Mauldin.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Mauldin traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by using the positive space in the design to voice one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mauldin logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mauldin logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased opinions on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they loved the design and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design realize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Mauldin publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most important part of a published book since it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many cases 1 of the things consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of air travel and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Mauldin logo design utilized for advertising and marketing and a label style for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be vintage cases.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Mauldin, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects considering that it seems that every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I actually love doing dental business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a Mauldin hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that projected a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious course of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the importance on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian steed logo design created for an equine cattle ranch that specializes in reproducing Arabian show steeds.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A Mauldin business logo layout featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to market their used items to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Mauldin logo design utilizing a graphic that captures the interest of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Mauldin company logo design has a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really created for an Mauldin regional farm it was actually designed for a products broker, and this particular company logo was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to design an identity that projected assurance, success, and wealth.

 Mauldin Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo design feature for externally encountering arrow and also the arrowheads imply that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they desired, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Logo design created for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is similar to a well-known Mauldin sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked closely with the business owner to design a business logo which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
